CNET Update: Nokia goes big with Lumia phones, tablet

2:56 /

Nokia reveals first Lumia Windows tablet and super-sized phones, Amazon raises price to get free shipping, and T-Mobile offers free data with iPads.

More tablets will face-off against the iPad. I'm Bridget Carey, and this is your CNET update. Apple isn't the only company showing off new gadgets this week. Nokia unveiled new Lumia Windows phones and a tablet, the same day as Apple's announcement. So, tough break for Nokia. With the company's first tablet will be the Lumia 2520, and it's a colorful 10-inch tablet that runs the lighter version of Windows 8, it's called Windows RT. It just means you can only download programs from the Windows Store. Now that will be out some time later in the year, and it looks like it'll be a strong competitor to the Microsoft's Surface tablet especially when you factor in the extra keyboard accessory. It costs $150, and includes a touch trackpad mouse, and it serves as a backup battery with an extra 5 hours of juice. Nokia also has a new line of extra large 6-inch smartphones, starting with the Nokia Lumia 1520. That will be coming to AT&T, and it's the first Windows phone with a Quad-core CPU. And it's got a 1080p HD display, along with a 20-megapixel camera. Nokia has also a scaled back version that will be a little cheaper, it's the Lumia 1320. You tend to find that these extra large phones are more popular in other countries outside the US. Nokia says, it's for someone who may not want both a tablet and a smartphone, and instead just invest in one big phone. But I have a feeling you want a Bluetooth headset, instead of holding this, up to your ear. After weeks of delays, the Blackberry Messenger App has finally arrived on iOS and android, only to keep you waiting. More than 10 million people have downloaded BBM on the first day, but when you open it, you have to enter in your email to be put on a waiting list to use it. Messaging apps are popular these days, and Blackberry could see a big user base if they ever get around to letting people use their app. Right before the holiday, shopping season begins, Amazon has increased the minimum spending amount to get free shipping, from $25, now to $35. Of course, it's just another reason to get people to sign up for the $80 a year Amazon Prime subscription, which provides free 2-day shipping on most items. And they're also throws in free movies on Prime Instant Video, which is like their net flicks. And several other perks are also available for Kindle owners. It's also worth noting that T-Mobile is selling iPads for the first time this year, and it's charging no money down for the 16gig model of the iPad Air, a customer can pay about $26 a month for 2 years to pay it off. T-Mobile also is offering 200 megabytes of data for free every month. That's your tech news update. For more details, head to CNET.com/update. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
